  • Privacy Update – What’s New, What’s Changing and What Consumers Think

  • About this program:
  • Are you ready for a data breach? It’s becoming increasingly apparent that no one is immune, and recent cyberattacks and data breaches have companies asking not “if” but “when”.
    Even if you’re ready for a breach, are you ready for possible changes to privacy legislation? How about changing consumer attitudes towards companies’ responsibility for their information?
    Join our expert panel to learn best practices and strategies to minimize the risk to your organization.

    Topics to be covered:
    ¬ Update on the Digital Privacy Act (Bill S-4): If passed, this Bill will make significant changes to Canadian privacy law. Will it pass, and if so, when? How will it affect your compliance and risk management activities?
    ¬ Not “If” but “When”: Practical tips on responding to data breaches. Whether starting from scratch or upgrading your existing breach management plan, our new Toolkit can help
    ¬ Privacy and John Q. Public: In the face of almost weekly privacy breaches, are public attitudes towards companies which handle consumer information hardening? Do consumers expect more from some industries than others? Hear the results of the latest consumer survey and what it means for your approach to privacy.s

    Join Kirsten Thompson and Barry Sookman of McCarthy Tétrault and Chris Kelly of Navigator as they give you practical advice on risk management in a changing privacy landscape.
